The magnetic field dependence of the SDW transition (TSDW) in quenched (TMTSF)2ClO4 has been measured up to 27 T, with the field parallel to the c*-direction. TSDW increases from 4.5 K in zero field up to 8.4 K at 27 T. The field dependence of TSDW has been calculated in the framework of the mean-field theory. As predicted, a quadratic behavior is observed at low field, followed by a saturation behavior. TSDW corresponding to the perfect nesting case is estimated to be 13.5 K. This means that the SDW phase of quenched (TMTSF)2 ClO4 is strongly suppressed by the two dimensionality of the system.
